Stake Conference in Carmen

Us with Presidente Hernandez, the
Carmen Stake President
  A few months ago President and I went to the Carmen Stake to see some missionaries.  While President was interviewing the missionaries, I was sitting in the hallway visiting with other missionaries and members and they came and went through the building that evening.  I was able to meet and make friends with a couple of special people, Jordan and his mom Esperanza, they were also waiting for their dad/husband to finish his interviews, he is the bishop of Puerto Real Ward in Carmen.  Last week, June 3 & 4, we were in the Carmen Stake for Stake Conference. We were in attendance with Elder Ortiz, an Area Seventy and President and Sister Turley, the Villahermosa Temple President and Matron.  We also had 14 of our missionaries in that Stake in attendance at the Conference.  The Carmen Zone missionaries sang a special musical number, "We'll Bring the World His Truth".  It was beautiful- it was the first time I had heard it sung in Spanish.  The Carmen Stake held two Sessions to accommodate the large number of members in their Stake- and each Session was full.  It is a joy to go all around the Mission (we have 9 Stakes and 1 District) and see so many strong, valiant members and to see and feel their Spiritual strength as they share their songs and talks.  The gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace and joy to those who live its teaching.  The Book of Mormon promises, if you keep my commandments, ye shall prosper in the land.  You can see this promise fulfilled in the faces of the Saints here in Mexico.
